Let's Get Started

Step 1
Cut a section of memory neck wire to fit around your neck, allowing for 8cm overlap.  Cut two 18cm pieces of hollow velvet cord.

Step 2
Using pliers turn one end of the memory wire into a small loop.  This is to stop the velvet cord sliding off the end.  Carefully feed one piece of velvet cord onto the neck ring, sliding it all the way to the end where you have made the loop.

Step 3
Thread three white pearls onto the memory wire followed by a rondelle and another three white pearls.

Step 4
Feed the second piece of velvet cord onto the neck wire.  Leave enough wire to make a loop and trim off any excess wire.  Finish off by using the pliers to turn the end of the wire into a loop.


Matching Bracelet

Step 1
Cut a length of bracelet memory wire that will give you 4 or 5 rings.  Cut approximately 10 pieces of velvet cord in varying lengths, the shortest should be around 5cm and the longest around 8cm.  This will allow the placement of pearls to be randomly spaced.

Step 2
Using pliers turn one end of the memory wire into a small loop to stop the velvet cord sliding off the end.  Carefully feed one piece of velvet cord onto the memory wire all the way to the end where you have made the loop.

Step 3
Thread on one pearl.  Feed on another length of velvet.  Continue alternating pearl and velvet until you have used approximately half of the velvet pieces.

Step 4
Thread on a rondelle, instead of a pearl, then continue by adding the remaining velvet cord and pearls.

Step 5
Leave enough wire to make a loop and trim off excess wire.  Finish off by using the pliers to turn the end of the wire into a loop.
